I think you should create a branch tag for OpenLDAP 1 related
stuff. That way both fixes for the "old" API and new stuff can go in
in parallel.

I would suggest a scheme where upper case tags are applied to
releases, and lower case tags are branches.


The head revision ("main trunk") holds the latest and greatest
version, leading towards the next major release. The side branch is
for fixing bugs in the current release (memory leaks...). The
openldap-1-api branch should lead to a 1.10final release.
